Kempinski Hotels' response to 2018 allegations of forced labour in Doha

[Kempinski]  firmly denies the allegations... Kempinski Hotels is wholly committed to abiding by the highest ethical standards and to providing a safe, fair and supportive working environment for all staff. 

These allegations dating back 2018 didn’t relate to Marsa Malaz Kempinski, The Pearl – Doha but subcontracting vendors... the hotel launched at the time an immediate inquiry into the working conditions of subcontracted staff... and black-listed the non-compliant subcontracting companies involved...

“The safety and wellbeing of all our employees is a priority... We have robust policies and procedures... to comply with all local, and international, labour laws and requirements and we require our subcontractors the same,” [said Martin R. Smura, CEO of Kempinski Hotels].
